    Seeking records of Myakka River State Park

    Jane HOGG Newbie

      The African American CCC Corps built Myakka River State Park -- SP-4. I am a volunteer at Myakka River State Park writing a history of the park  First Corps (white) arrived at the park site in October 1935.  This Corps left in August 1935 and an African American Corps was sent in. They remained until 1941. Records for each month of the first group being here are intact.  But only the first two month records of the African Corps can be found. Since the state parks were under the Federal Park Service and the Department of the Interior when the Corps began, I thought (hoped) perhaps you might have the missing records. Thanks for your help!
